Good Scents: The Best Perfumes to Gift this Christmas

From blockbuster scents to hidden perfume hall gems, discover the very best Christmas scents to suit every fragrance personality. No gift receipt necessary

By: Verity Clark

While the best Christmas scents are a popular choice of gift at this time of year, it’s also one of the easiest to get wrong for the simple fact that perfume taste is so inherently personal. One woman’s favourite floral perfume is another woman’s mosquito repellent, or so the saying goes. But that is where we can help. Liberty's iconic Beauty Hall is a reliable haven of extraordinary scents, so whether you’re buying for your friend who is obsessed with smelling clean, or your sister who’s desperate for the cult fragrance of the season, please find the answer within our carefully curated fragrance gift guide – featuring the all-new Liberty LBTY. Fragrance collection for starters.

FOR THE MAIN CHARACTER

Chloé Iris Eau de Parfum 50ml, £125

Part of the prestigious Atelier des Fleurs collection by Chloé, Iris smells powdery and clean, like climbing into just-washed sheets. Inspired by the elegant iris x germanica flower, a blue-violet plant found in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, it can be worn alone or layered with another favourite scent for something totally unique to you.

Laboratorio Olfattivo Vetyverso, £145

Not for the faint hearted, this is spicy, woody deliciousness that packs a serious punch. The smoky, leathery scent of vetiver takes centre stage and so will whoever wears this unisex scent. An olfactory delight, for the brave.

Véronique Gabai Le Point G, £250

There’s no beating around the bush with this one. Inspired by the G-spot (yes, that one), it was created for pleasure seekers and the magic mix of spicy pepper, white musk and vanilla does indeed invoke a feeling of hedonism. Plus, it also comes in a handy travel size so it makes a great stocking filler or gift for that person who’s always on the go.

FOR THE MINIMALIST

BIBBI Soap Club Eau de Parfum, £225

The name may suggest something light and fresh, but that isn't necessarily what BIBBI is about. This blend of frothy soap notes comes anchored by white flowers and leather, so while it may be pared back and sophisticated, it's far from boring.

Liberty LBTY. Fragrance Wild Rosinda Eau de Parfum 100ml, £225

A mysterious scent chock-full of floral notes, this new perfume from the Liberty LBTY. Fragrance collection comes inspired by our Decadent Blooms print, melding rose and peony with hot saffron, patchouli and smouldering wood.

Escentric Molecules Escentric 04, £100

If you’re buying for someone who’s quietly understated but always cool then allow us to introduce you to 04 from synthetic fragrance brand Escentric Molecules. The spotlight is on the smooth, sexy scent of sandalwood but it’s much softer than the real thing, a whisper not a shout, if you will.

Diptyque Philosykos, £125

If they like the smell of fig (and who doesn't?) then they’ll love this. Crisp shirts, ironed pillow cases, regularly blow dried hair; that’s the vibe with this very clean, very fresh fragrance. It’s neat, tidy and doesn’t make a fuss, in a good way.

D.S. & Durga Deep Dark Vanilla Eau de Parfum 50ml, £155

A rich fragrance that dives into the sumptuous depths of real vanilla absolute. Banishing the saccharine, cloying notes of synthetic vanilla, this decadent scent delivers a gourmand, toasted and smoky vanilla aroma which, once settled on the skin, reveals fresh, green notes that recall jungle vines.

FOR THE IT GIRLS

Bibbi The Other Room Eau de Parfum 100ml, £225

New to Liberty's Beauty Hall, Bibbi Parfum's The Other Room evokes the intrigue and exclusivity of a masked ball with its notes of carnation and saffron, blended with a touch of patchouli and vétiver for an opulent, standout finish.

Liberty LBTY. Fragrance Liberty Maze Eau de Parfum 100ml, £225

Crafted by none other than top perfumer, Gabi Chelariu, Liberty Maze takes its scent cues from our heritage Orchard Print. In other words, imagine an artist's garden in 1970s spring time: clusters of blooming jasmine, honeysuckle and silver birch, artfully blended with soft musk and citrus. It's a scented dream.

Byredo De Los Santos, £185

Gifting any Byredo fragrance will elicit squeals of delight; the cult perfumes are a sure fire way to elevate any dressing table to in-the-know status. De Los Santos is one of the newer launches, and while it’s less talked about than Gypsy Water and Mister Marvelous, we predict that its heady trio of musk, sage and incense will soon make it a firm fan favourite.

Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle Heaven Can Wait, £185

A cult classic of the future, there's something suitably iconic about this brand new fragrance. Hitting the 'skin scent' trend perfectly, it'll practically wrap you in comforting notes of iris, magnolia and musk. It's understated, sophisticated and incredibly moreish.

FOR THE SWEET TOOTH

Liberty LBTY. Fragrance Zephirine Eau de Parfum 100ml, £225

There's a fresh kind of sweetness to Zephirine, courtesy of ripe and luscious fig notes. It manages to blend stalky-fresh fig leaves with velvety rose petals, all under an aura of incense, soft leather and rich vetiver.

Creed Wind Flowers Eau de Parfum, £260

This is a very happy fragrance. With notes of jasmine, orange blossom and peach, it’s light and bright and will have the wearer floating off to some far flung Christmas beach getaway. Notes of sandalwood and tuberose help to toughen it up and stop it being too sickly sweet. Spritz this and you’ll spread optimism.

Vilhelm Parfumerie Mango Skin Eau de Parfum 50ml

Muddling sharp blackberry with juicy mango, creamy vanilla and pink sugar, this concoction from Vilhelm Parfumerie is as mouthwatering as it sounds. But the sweetness comes tempered by notes of wild orris, black lotus, jasmine and patchouli.
